animal excellent!
29 October 2005 | by suzannedipasqualeSee all my reviews

the actors are great, wild, and some scenes are so hot. andreas Wilson is wild as an animal. the directing is amazing, especially for a first time director. it's a real thriller and real sci fi at same time. with the type of future completely new and credible. no gadget there. strange and spectacular. not the cheap/trendy usual look of most indies. the director shows she KNOWS how to do this. sometimes, you get the feeling that new directors are filming with the "amateur" style, because they CANT do it in a different fashion. not with "animal". i glad i made that discovery. and also: it deals with violence, but does not crawl into it. a class act. wish more filmmakers had so much respect for their audience, these days...
